Forum: GratefulDead Subject: (Non-Dead) Draft Time Change????

Sorry to continue cluttering the board up with all this baseball nonsense but I wanted to know if anyone adamantly disapproves of drafting at 7:30EDT on Sunday as opposed to 9:00.

If there aren't more than 7 dissentions posted in this thread (from people in the league, smartass) within the next 12-24 hours then the time will be changed.

Thank you, thank you!

Also... I've noticed that there are several team owner names I don't recognize. This is great as the league was meant to be inclusive but I do want to make sure that if you have never played fantasy baseball before (or if you have and you're a putz) you understand that this is a ~6 month deal that requires more attention and action than the once a week lineup setting you find in fantasy football. I don't entirely mean to sound like a prick here, but if you think you're going to bail on the league because you're bored or find yourself in the gutter early (Larry) then do the rest of us a favor and don't play. It just sucks when half the people are actively participating and the other half disappear.

On that note, let's have a kick ass draft and a fun season!

In the gutter early? More like early and often!!

I am out of town this weekend so it doesn't really matter what time as I am unlikely to be able to participate. However as wayne pointed out so kindly yesterday, the auto-pick worked well for me last year.

Dire gets picked on enough, I just figured you made the next easiest target. Have a safe weekend!

Thanks! Heading to Vancouver for a conference and some cut-rate olympic gear. Cliff has already set me straight on an Indian restaurant and some sushi. Should be fun.

i appreciate your attempt to spread the abuse more equitably ;)


the 7:30 draft time works fine for me (as does the 9). hopefully our west coast managers (ie High Flow) can do the earlier time also. (guess i should start looking at some player ratings before sunday)

I know you were asking for dissenting votes only, but since retiring I no longer take direction well. Just ask Mrs. Mando.

And just to continue the theme of being a butt head.

Point of order:

We roll clocks ahead an hour Sunday morning, so the draft is at 7:30PM EDT. Note the "D".

All of you knot heads show up at 7:30 EST and Pujols is gone.

But I will tell you where he is.
